Rich Rodriguez is going to be a busy man this week with football season just more than a month away.

The Arizona Wildcats coach will travel to the ESPN studios to run through the "car wash"--a term for a series of interviews in one day.

Rodriguez's schedule at ESPN will look like this, according to the Pac-12 blog. All times are Tucson time:

7 a.m.: GameDay Radio

7:15 a.m.: SC Tonight with Freddie Coleman

7:30 a.m.: Recruiting Nation

9:15 a.m.: The Herd with Colin Cowherd

9:30 a.m.: chat

10:20 a.m.: SportsCenter

10:45 a.m.: College Football Live

11:15 a.m.: SVP & Russilo radio show

11:45 a.m.: Coach & Company radio show

All 12 coaches from the league will travel to ESPN over a two-day span on Wednesday and Thursday for interviews. The coaches from the north division will be featured on Wednesday. Rodriguez and the rest of the coaches from the south will get their turn on Thursday.

After he does his thing at ESPN, Rodriguez will fly to Los Angeles for Pac-12 Media Day on Friday. Wide receiver Terrance Miller and linebacker Jake Fischer will join Rodriguez on Friday, but it's coaches only at ESPN.

After his flurry of interviews and hand-shaking, Rodriguez will begin to really get ready for the 2013 season. The team begins practice the week of Aug. 5 and opens its season Aug. 30 against NAU.
